The neglected Rehoboth grave yard on Farsley’s Coal Hill Lane is now getting the makeover it deserves. GoodGym have been asked to help with the Rehoboth graveyard restoration.

The Rehoboth team meet regularly, but are always in need of extra hands - and this is where we come in. The tasks that we will be getting involved with will depend on what is being done by the rest of the Rehoboth team but will be manual tasks such as:

  • Recovery of coping stones (150 years old) for wall builders
  • Moving wood up a short slope to our bonfire area.
  • Re erecting a headstone upright
  • Clearing a cobbled turning circle originally for teams of horses to use.
  • General strimming and clearing.

There are lots of tasks still to be done, so our support is greatly appreciated. They will have an experienced volunteer in charge. Please wear a fluorescent jacket - if you have one, and gardening gloves. If you don't have these, the site team have some we can borrow.

You can find out more about the Rehoboth on their Twitter page: https://twitter.com/FarsleyOf or read this article: https://westleedsdispatch.com/community-spirit-is-key-to-progress-at-farsley-rehoboth-burial-ground/

The Farsley Baptist Rehoboth Burial Ground is located on the junction of Coal Hill Lane/Bagley Lane, Farsley, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS28 5NA - there are toilets and parking spots near by. It is also easily accessed from the Leeds-Liverpool canal for those of you running, walking or cycling!
